unlimited in thought...
detached from time...
what a gift that was...
we, not you...
allow me to spill my thoughts...
the things we think and do not say...
it's never as bad as it seems...
tomorrow will be better...
moments of weakness...
it is the unknown that scares us the most...
be patient and let things unfold...
it's the freedom I chase...
you begin to operate at that level...
